Vanilla frosting

Yellow decorating icing

18 to 20 baked yellow cupcakes, cooled

2 bags mini marshmallows 

Yellow color mist 


Special equipment:
popcorn boxes
  1. Dye some vanilla frosting with yellow decorating icing the color of butter. Frost each cupcake with the dyed yellow frosting. Cut mini marshmallows down the middle, but not completely in half, and place them on top of the cupcakes to completely cover the tops. Spray the marshmallows (while on the cupcakes) with yellow color mist. Place the cupcakes in popcorn boxes.

Cook’s Note

Spray the yellow mist outside or over the sink so it doesn't go everywhere.
